A lot of people like to be nannied I guess. Who knew?
Remember, we are supposed to be the government. Government is a way of pooling resources to assist in leveling out often huge inequities and roadblocks to make life better for everyone. In theory. Often those charged with this mission, even when elected, make a mess of it. Still, the desire to improve our lives and those of others is a strong one.
H/T to Ezra.
